Some of my thoughts act out like truths and argue with me to banish other thoughts (they don’t like) that try to engage me. This persistent battle goes on every second in my mind. That my friend is the truth – and reality is just an ongoing game inside me.

The truth shall never be formed – it is like cancer, an endless battle

– Vineet Raj Kapoor

Out of my sheer negligence, some of these thought spill out and argue their case with outsiders, that my friend is my image that I draw in front of you. However, that image is far from truth, since the argumentative thoughts, those who are losing an argument spill out, whereas the truths don’t argue.

Sach kahan apne pairon par chalta hai
main ungli pakad ke chala doon to hai
char logon ke kandhe par chad gaya
to dafn, phir woh sach sach nahin hai
– Vineet Raj Kapoor

Translation:

When did Truth move on it’s own feet?
If I hold it’s little fingers, it will walk
on the shoulders of four pallbearers
it’d be a burial – no longer the Truth
– Vineet Raj Kapoor

Truth will never learn to walk till I hold it’s hand

– Vineet Raj Kapoor

Some thoughts which are very strong in my mind but are afraid to come out, have to live in the dark areas of my mind – as I disown them persistently, those my friend are my fantasies, my sexuality. They are the paradoxical phoenix – outcasts as well as the natives at the same time (consider the aborigines, the red indians, the tribals, the orang asli). I have learnt to fear them, and not to consider them as my own and fight them – but they are phantoms of my desires and would not die. I never let them argue their case. They are probably me, but the outside world has an ongoing game – where they (the fantasies) are the snake charmers and street performers who must be hidden from ridicule – everyone does that and suddenly reality become untruths and arguments become truths. We fear that everything that goes out of our minds will die in this battlefield, so we keep our truths hidden deep inside us – we let them out at night, in our dreams!

We let out truths at night, in our dreams

I am supposed to create arguments that become me, while protecting the real truths deep inside as they make me look like a monster (as per an ongoing argument).

Postscript: The entire world is a crazy virtual reality and VR offers us a chance once again to be real. Well that’s the subject of another article down the lane..

Games let me re-enter my mind
